John Lancaster & Co, Nantyglo & Blaina Collieries, Reward Notice. Dated 1894. Size 16″x 11″.
In the 1890s the Lancaster Co Workmen’s Trains were being abused, the passengers were treating the transport with disregard and showed no respect to the carriages. The Company tightened up and clamped down on the problem.

The clamp-down didn’t seem to have much effect as 2 years later in 1894 the Lancaster company produced and posted reward posters (as seen above) to try and combat the many problems.
